I don't understand the concept of the "hearts". Can someone tell me what that's all about or point me to where on the Duolingo site I can find out? Merci!

The hearts signify 'lives' - like in a game. When you are out of hearts (you've made too many errors), you have to start the lesson or practice over again.

Ahhh, yes, that's what I suspected. Is there a way to "earn" hearts? I am quite new to this and just figuring it out (and LOVING it).

Thank you for your reply, Lyarra.

There is no way to earn hearts, but you always have full hearts when you start a lesson or a practice session.

Thank you, olimo. "You always have full hearts." I like this concept. ♥
